SOME, Inc. dba, So Others Might Eat
January 29, 2010

I was fired from my job after 8 years of employment. I applied for assistance and was sent through the standard programs that DC offers for job training, my confidence was low and I felt that I needed more training. I was fearful of failing and being out of a job or being on welfare forever. I found the handout for CET through the ARCH Jobs (a job readiness program in the District). The process was easy to get in, I applied one week and started the following week. I was defeated and fearful in the beginning, I was able to open up about those concerns and work with them the entire time that I was enrolled. The staff was always open, always ready with a open mind and understanding heart. The closer it got to graduation I didn't want to leave. I didn't have to worry the staff was still there while I was in job search. They stayed on top of me and still after 3 years they still know me by name and I know that if I need anything that they are just a phone call away. I really thank them for helping me get my confidence back and being able to enter in my career.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my career. I have used the training that I have received in the program. The technical as well as the human development sessions and have used them in my career to advance. CET has helped me to see I still have more to learn.
